In regards to WMD, British House of Commons leader Robin Cook wrote in his diary on September 24, 2002: “…most chemical or biological agents that Saddam had retained for a decade would long ago have degenerated to the point that they were of no operational use. …Government ministers alarmed the public by claims that Saddam had ten thousand litres of anthrax solution unaccounted for since 1991. They never added that the standard life of liquid anthrax is three years and by now the substance would be in the words of Scott Ritter, the former UN inspector, ‘harmless useless goo.’ ”
